As we have seen over the past two weeks in SmackDown Live, both SmackDown General Manager Daniel Bryan and SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon have inserted themselves as the special guest referees for the Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn vs. Randy Orton & Shinsuke Nakamura match at this Sunday’s WWE Clash of Champions PPV. If Owens & Sami lose, they will be fired from all of WWE.
Below are the tweets sent out by both Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan regarding this Sunday’s match and themselves being the special guest referees:
I’ve been getting a lot of questions about my decision from #SDLive. I’ve been asked where my “loyalty” lies. When I step into the ring at #WWEClash, it’ll be to protect the future of #SDLive for the @WWE Universe: something @shanemcmahon and I definitely agree on.

I agree with Daniel. We both want to protect the future of #SDLive. Looking forward to Sunday. #WWEClash https://t.co/dejGckjiDn
